Flagstaff wins another award

The Flagstaff House Restaurant in Boulder has once again won the Wine Spectator Grand Award this year.

Flagstaff is the first Colorado restaurant to win the honor and is one of the few restaurants in the world that has done so every year since its inception in 1983.

There are only about 80 restaurants world-wide that have ever achieved the Grand Award designation.

“Wine Spectator’s reputation, extremely high standards and dedication to excellence makes this a real honor,” said Mark Monette. “It’s wonderful to be recognized for our dedication to wine, food and customer service.”

Pinyon goes backwards, man

The Pinyon in Boulder has introduced a “Backwards Man Foraging Dinner Series.”

The dinners, held on Wednesdays, are based on the concept illustrated by the Pinyon logo, a man riding backwards on a horse.

Pinyon officials say the man is “looking back on our shared culinary heritage while still charging ahead with modern day technique and innovation. … We’ll introduce wild ingredients from the Colorado wilderness and construct plates that unwaveringly reflect micro-seasonality and the hard work of the many creative people we rely on to gather the ingredients.”

The dinners are $40, with cocktail flights for an additional $25.
